Roaches common at this cottage

Rustic cottage on a beautiful slice of Georgian Bay shoreline. Pristine views. However, we left early because of our experience with wood cockroaches inside the cottage. We noticed the roaches, first, halfway through our stay and then several times until we left three days early. We saw live roaches in the cutlery drawer, sink, bathroom and on our clothing. We started to notice traps and dead roaches around the place.

It was hard to feel comfortable after that, so we left.

As an extra precaution, we bagged all our belongings and did several loads of laundry upon returning home. We found two roaches had travelled back with us in our bags.

We’ve been told wood roaches are common in the area, and therefore not much can be done about the issue. We’ve also been told they’re not as invasive as other species of cockroach, but regardless we would not have booked this cottage had we known.
